Southampton City Council – Clean Buses

   Councils  

Southampton City Council been awarded £2.7m from the Clean Bus Technology Fund (CBTF) to work with bus service providers in the city to improve 145 older (non-euro 6) buses so they meet the same standard as a Euro 6 vehicle.

 

This scheme is currently being implemented, alongside a fleet upgrade programme to ensure all operational buses in the city meet this same standard by the start of 2020. A traffic regulation condition requiring a minimum Euro 6 standard for operational buses is to be introduced before 2020 to ensure full participation in the CBTF scheme; delivery of the operators upgrade programme and to prevent older, more polluting buses re-entering the Southampton fleet in the future.
